The Mortgage Collaborative - TMC

SAN DIEGO, Calif. /Massachusetts Newswire – National News/ — The Mortgage Collaborative (TMC), the nation’s largest independent cooperative network serving the mortgage industry, has wrapped up its fourth annual 12 Days of TMC, a virtual conference running from November 30 to December 15, 2023. The online event, spread over three weeks, featured several keynote speakers, including:

* Brittany Hodak, a motivational speaker and author of Creating SuperFans, a book Forbes calls “the must-read manual for turning your customers into superfans.”

* Naa Awaa Tagoe, deputy director for the Division of Housing Mission and Goals at the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA).

* Michelle Simms-Reiter, founder and CEO of Strive Leadership Development.

* James Tobin, president and CEO of the National Association of Home Builders.

* Dr. Ben Carson, formerly the United States secretary of HUD.

12 Days of TMC first kicked off in 2020 when COVID-19 forced many in-person events to go online. This year’s event kicked off with a teaser from TMC’s leaders, who promised to deliver “content for every team member” in 2023 — and they did just that, with sessions covering leadership development, serving underserved communities, pricing engines comparisons, commission structures and many advocacy issues.

For those involved in TMC’s 12 working groups, the event featured corresponding topic-specific sessions and a bonus session previewing a new risk and compliance focused group debuting in 2024. Two sessions were dedicated to the group’s mortgage learning platform, TMCU, an online training and career enrichment resource.

Members also enjoyed participating in the group’s first-ever Solution Sprint, an online pitch-style competition between teams who created solutions to address some of the mortgage industry’s most pressing challenges, judged by Housing Finance Strategies’ Faith Schwartz, MGIC’s Chris Perry and Atlantic Bay Mortgage Group’s Julie Watson.

“From the keynotes and friendly competition among peers to the workshops and breakout sessions, we delivered great content from leaders in many sectors of our business and external influencers at a very affordable rate – plus you could tune in from your home or office,” said David Kittle, CMB, TMC CEO and co-founder. “Lender members came away with valuable updates and information they’ll be able to put to use right away, and, of course, we’re already using their comments and feedback to prepare for next year’s event.”

Upcoming events from TMC can be viewed on the group’s calendar.
